Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A cozy, visually rich celebration of Christmas to pore over.

Readers are off to the North Pole in this brimming holiday treat. On each page, a deceptively simple item — stocking, snowman, reindeer — pulls readers into a nostalgic, exquisitely detailed moment of the yuletide journey: a trip in Santa's sleigh, supper with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, watching the elves hard at work, and finally arriving home in time for Christmas morning.

Secret clues, plus hidden allusions to classic Christmas carols, elevate this from a gorgeous book to an interactive holiday treasure hunt — a natural fit for the whole family at Christmastime.

Review:

"In an album of crackle-varnish paintings that suggest a bygone era, Jay (The Cloud Spinner) catalogues images seen by two children on a fantastical Christmas Eve journey. While not a creature is stirring, a boy and girl tiptoe from bed to greet Santa and his reindeer out on the snowy lawn. They are soon dashing with their jolly chauffeur through the night sky to the North Pole, where they are welcomed by Mrs. Claus and the elves before an angel escorts them home. Each page features a softly lit scene inspired by an evocative word — 'carolers,' 'snowman,' 'workshop.' Attentive readers can also try to find clues in the illustrations that link the pictures to favorite Christmas carols. Ages 2 – 6. Agent: The Organisation." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
